It's online the call for paper for the Second International Conference on e-Social Science that is taking place in Manchester, UK. It sound quite interesting except from the "e-" on the title. First of all the "e-stuff" sounds very outdated now in the 2.0 era... but the main reason is that I simply can't understand what would be the main research topic of e-Social Sciences and why it should be different from (traditional) social sciences. I guess that technologies should be used as an observation field where look for more wider social phenomena. If researchers that are working on e-technolgies are going to research only e-topics we are doomed to obtain just a e-useless e-sociology. By the way... I'm going to ask to my friend FG to present a paper together.
